Libertas Malta was a political party in Malta set up to contest the 2009 European Parliament elections under a common banner with Libertas.eu. Its only candidate Mary Gauci failed to be elected and the party has been inactive since.

History[edit]

Plans of Libertas.eu's leader Declan Ganley to cooperate with the Maltese Azzjoni Nazzjonali (AN) on contesting the 2009 European Parliament elections[2] didn't realize. However, Mary Gauci, AN's former vice-president decided to run under the banner of Libertas.[3]

On 21 March 2009, Ganley announced the establishment of the party Libertas Malta. Mary Gauci, announced as party leader, advanced the issues of democracy, accountability, transparency, subsidiarity, a concise constitution passed by referenda, and illegal immigration.[4]

In the European Parliament election held that year Gauci got only 314 first-preference votes out of 248,169 valid votes cast (i.e. 0.1%).
